While details are still coming in, reports reveal an explosion at Disneyland’s Toontown has caused the attraction to be evacuated. The Anaheim Police Department were part of the first responders, and based on their observations, the explosion was caused by placing dry ice in plastic bottle.
Apparently, a bomb squad from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department continued the investigation. As indicated, further details have been sparse, however, Twitter has been active with updates, including some featuring images of patrons leaving in an orderly manner:
